plymouth! It has a password caching facility and systemd seems to use it

Almost certainly, yes, although, if plymouth is passing the password
through to systemd, then it need not be caching it itself, as systemd
caches disk passwords for a short while (I think 5 minutes if I recall
correctly). See systemd-ask-password(1) for an introduction to the
architecture of systemd's password stuff.
